The folks over at Karstyle recently launched a new facelift kit for the older-style Model S to give it the smooth lines of the upgraded Model S that was released last month. The big change is with the lower fascia that does away with the old black bubble grill and smooths things over in a very pleasant way.
The upgrade doesn’t play with what would surely be an expensive upgrade to the new headlight design, but really nails the big feature of the new aesthetic change with the new bumper. I personally like the new look and don’t really notice the “old” headlight design. It works and really makes the frontend look quite a bit sleeker, smoother, and faster (uhhh…).
The kit isn’t just for the dreamers out there but is really aimed at (and priced for) someone with plenty of cash to burn on an upgrade that just makes the vehicle look better without any performance improvements.
I love playing with Model S and even some of the beautiful upgrades from EV Annex … but that’s all centered around the functionality of them. The car has a few outages in the area of internal storage, coat hangers, tire protectors, and the like that are easily solved.
I might even be enough of a car geek to go for this upgrade, because I do like the look, but the price tag feels a bit steep at $3,450. What do you think? Worth it? Too expensive to upgrade to the new look without any of the new tech perks? Check out the kit here and share your thoughts below.
